Um, no... That's NOT what graduate students call me.
This weekend's guilty viewing pleasure was Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, originally released as a mini series (3 episodes, 14 min each); I streamed it on Netflix in its entirety (about 42 min total), but you can get it in other ways as specified here.
I don't know why it took me so long to see it (came out in 2008), I have certainly been aware of it for quite a while. It came from Joss Whedon, who's got great geek cred (Buffy, Firefly...), and stars Neil Patrick Harris (I grew fond of his Barney in How I Met Your Mother) as well as Felicia Day (The Guild), an old Joss Whedon favorite, Nathan Fillion (Firefly, Serenity), and the always awesome Simon Helberg (the Big Bang Theory).
Dr Horrible is a villain aspiring to move into the big leagues of villainy as well as impress a girl; arch-nemesis Captain Hammer is always in his way, though...
Hub and eldest offspring protested about the singing, but I didn't mind and some of the songs (especially in the second half) are pretty cool. It was really great fun overall.
